The holidays are a wonderful time for gathering with family and friends. While the more the merrier certainly applies it also means that there are that many more devices in your home trying to access your home's network, more people on the couch watching family favorites, and fun new devices to get up and running.
As you prepare your home for the holidays, here are some tips and tricks on how you can use your technology to make the season a little merrier.
Stress-Less Wi-Fi Checklist
Prepare your network for all the extra devices and internet traffic before your guests arrive. It’s one less thing to stress about once they are at your house.
Before guests arrive, find your Wi-Fi password so you have it ready when your friends and relatives want to connect. Write your password down and make sure you put it in a place where it’s easily accessible.
Nothing slows your Wi-Fi like obstacles and interference, but you can improve your Wi-Fi speed with just a few easy changes. Make sure your modem and router are in an open area that is clear of furniture, Christmas decorations, metal objects and appliances. Keep in mind other connected devices, like Bluetooth speakers, can also create interference.
